Bathroom Cabinets

When remodeling or building a new home, bathroom cabinets are very important for your interior design....as well as functional. Our Kitchen Cabinets are very similar, to our bathroom cabinets: we used solid maple fronts with a different finish in each of our bathrooms.

The other key difference in the bath cabinets is that we used cultured marble tops instead of granite. This was primarily due to the fact that we used an overrun of granite in the kitchen from a countertop manufacturer that installed it at about half the normal cost. Our countertop contractor had just enough to do the kitchen countertops. We could have gone with a different lot of granite but we decided to save some money and put in cultured marble.

While I am thinking about it... if you are looking for a great tool to design you bathroom, kitchen, landscaping, or entire house, go have a look at  Plan 3D. It is a excellent design tool! Check it out!

We have three full baths in the house, two downstairs and one upstairs. 

Bathroom Cabinet Master Bath
This is the Master Bath Cabinet. My wife designed and finished it. It has extra deep drawers and the top sink face fronts pull out to offer good storage for toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste eliminating clutter on the counter.  She used a glossy, pearly finish that gave the maple an iridescent quality without covering up the beauty of the grain of the wood. Then she covered the specialty finish with a high gloss urethane for durability.

We installed a tile border between the cultured marble top and the fluted trim around the mirror. This set of the contrast nicely. My wife also picked out diamond faceted, acrylic cabinet pulls that fit in beautifully.
Bathroom Cabinet Upstairs
This is the upstairs bath cabinet. My wife finished this cabinet using a white wash stain. It brings out the finish of the wood and matches the old timey theme of the bath perfectly. 

This bath also has tons of cabinet storage, with six extra deep drawers on heavy duty drawer guides that pull the drawer all the way out to make full use of the drawer.

She picked out antique Brass Cabinet Pulls that keep with the theme. They are solid brass with an rubbed antique finish. She also took brass door hinges and antiqued them with stain to match the cabinets. She does great detail/finish work, but sorry.... she is not for hire!


Bathroom Cabinet
This is a picture of our downstairs guest bath sink area. I know it is not a bath cabinet but it may give you a good idea what to do with a guest bathroom. (When you build your own home, you will be able to install high grade Kohler faucets, toilets, and bidet as we did.)

We did not need the bath cabinet storage like in the other baths and this oversized pedestal sink gave this bath a unique, high quality look and took up less space.
If you want more information about cabinets, it would be a good idea for you to review the Kitchen Cabinet page. I go into much more detail about trim carpenters, cabinet hardware, and lighting.
